FedRAMP’s monitoring and reporting for BlackBerry Government Mobility Suite will be provided by BlackBerry’s U.S. Cyber Security Operations Center and Compliance staff. The company created BlackBerry Government Solutions to boost its FedRAMP initiatives.

Further, the combination of BlackBerry Cylance’s artificial intelligence and machine learning cybersecurity capabilities with BlackBerry Spark has made its endpoint management and embedded software products more essential for businesses to generate value from the Internet of Things.
